I have been to a few rodeos in my lifetime.
I hated them. They were outrageous.
The calf-roping was my least favorite.. they throw a rope around a little calf's neck, and yank on it. The cow falls onto the ground, and lots of them break legs/necks doing it.
Calves were running for their lives, terrified, innocent little creatures, that we torture for our own entertainment..
The thing that stumps me.. is how in this world, are there so many people wanting to watch that!??
The bronc riding, and bull riding, is horrible as well. They put a veryvery tight strap around the spot just where the top of the legs are, where it is their sensitive spot.
It is so unbearable, that the horses have to buck.
I have watched a video on youtube, where one horse wouldn't buck, they took her back in, and kicked her and punched her.. but she still wouldn't...
Poor animals.. :( they are such friendly creatures, but people feel they have to make a disgrace out of them :(
I hate how tons of people think bulls are vicious creatures, who will attack you.
But, they are the kindest creatures I know of! And they love a good scratch :)
I patted a huge bull's head, and he leaned into me enjoying it.
That's my opinion, and don't try to deny the truth
